Juvederm is a non-invasive injectable cosmetic treatment for smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles on the face. Juvederm can give you younger-looking skin with results lasting as long as one year before additional treatments are needed. Several types of Juvederm are available at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, where our medspa team, lead by Dr. Christopher Sesslar, can recommend a specific Juvederm treatment to help you achieve your desired results.

Juvederm Injectable Fillers

Juvederm makes it possible to achieve skin that is smoother and more youthful-looking without surgical intervention. It is an injectable dermal filler that can minimize or eliminate lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Additionally, some Juvederm treatments are safely used to treat fine lines around the eyes. The experienced professionals at our medspa in Dayton, OH, can recommend a specific Juvederm treatment that is best suited for the area of skin you wish to target.

Types of Juvederm treatments include:

  • Juvederm Ultra XC
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Juvederm Vollure XC
  • Juvederm Volbella XC

Juvederm products contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural protein that is easily and gradually absorbed into the body. Young, healthy skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which delivers nutrients to the skin and helps hydrate it. Hyaluronic acid is one of the reasons youthful skin appears smooth and plump. Unfortunately, the skin’s ability to naturally produce enough hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, which is where Juvederm treatments can help. Juvederm delivers the hyaluronic acid your skin is missing.

Juvederm Treatments

The Juvederm filler is a gel-like substance that is administered via injection directly into the treatment area, performed right here at our Dayton medspa. For example, Juvederm is injected directly into the skin around the mouth to eliminate lines often referred to as “parentheses.” Treatment sessions typically last only about 15 minutes but could take longer if additional injections are needed or multiple areas are being treated at one time. Immediately after treatment, your skin will be visibly smoother and your results will continue to improve over the following weeks. There is no recovery period so you can continue with your regular activities right away.

Smoother and younger-looking skin is just a Juvederm treatment away. To find out which Juvederm treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Sesslar by calling our medspa, Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212.

CoolSculpting is an innovative body contouring treatment for eliminating unwanted fat cells. This non-surgical procedure involves freezing away fat cells in targeted areas of the body. We offer CoolSculpting at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, where Dr. Christopher Sesslar can determine if you are a candidate for this exciting new body contouring treatment.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting can be thought of as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction for removing stubborn fat that has been difficult to shed through traditional diet and exercise methods. It is an excellent option for individuals who are uncomfortable undergoing a surgical body contouring procedure. CoolSculpting is an effective method for removing unwanted fat cells from various areas of the body, including the belly, buttocks, thighs, and arms. CoolSculpting patients in Dayton use it to treat love handles or a double chin.

The way CoolSculpting works is by freezing fat cells in the area being targeted. This method is so effective because fat tissue freezes at a higher temperature than other tissues in the body. What that means is that the fat cells crystallize more quickly, which allows the CoolSculpting equipment to readily target fat cells without affecting other tissues in the body. The body sees frozen fat cells as dead tissue. Its natural response is to eliminate these dead tissues by gradually flushing the fat cells out of the body over time.

Since it does take time for the body to remove the frozen fat cells, your body contouring results will not be immediately visible after your CoolSculpting treatment at our med spa in Dayton. Most patients can see significantly noticeable results within about two months following treatment. Although, some patients have been able to observe a more contoured body in as little as three weeks. Results can potentially continue improving for up to six months after undergoing CoolSculpting.

If you are interested in a nonsurgical body contouring option, CoolSculpting could be just what you are looking for. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Sesslar to learn more about CoolSculpting by calling Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212.
